* [[DishingOutDirt Earth]] - Brown or green hair. More rarely, orange or yellow. Usually short hair on males, females may have longer hair. Tends to be WildHair or dreadlocks.
* [[ShockAndAwe Lightning]] - Yellow or white. Hair will often be spiky, as though hit by an electric current.

Hair color is an easy visual shorthand for getting information about a character to the audience. Most often, hair color will tell you something about the character's personality, but sometimes, its meaning is far more obvious: this character has an {{Elemental Power|s}} and the [[ColorCodedElements hair color to match the element]]. Quite often, their personality will also be tied to their element and thus their hair color.

Sister trope to ElementalEyeColors. Subtrope of ColorCodedElements, ColorCodedForYourConvenience, and AstonishinglyAppropriateAppearance. Often overlaps with YouGottaHaveBlueHair. Compare FlamingHair, which is this trope for fire elemental users taken UpToEleven.

* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' does this twice: once with the Eevee brothers (the yellow-haired one having a Jolteon, the redhead a Flareon, the blue-haired one a Vaporeon, and the one with brown hair has an unevolved Eevee) and once with brothers Cilan (green hair, grass), Chili (red hair, fire), and Cress (blue hair, water).
** More than twice, actually. Many of the gym leaders have hair that corresponds with their type, either in color or shape. Lt. Surge, Volkner, and Wattson have spiky hair (for Wattson, what little hair he has), and the first two are blonde. Wattson is old, so his hair is white, although he was probably blonde in his younger days as well. Janine, the Poison Ninja leader, has dark purple hair, and her father has dark hair as well, along with Ghost-type Sabrina, Psychic Olympia and Psychic twins Tate and Liza. Fantina has light purple hair. Elesa, the Electric supermodel, has bright yellow-blonde hair, as does electric inventor Clement. Ice-type actor Brycen has light blue hair, Water-type swimmer Marlon has dark blue hair, and Water-type Wallace has blue-green hair, like sea foam.

[[ChristmasCake Miz Mishtal]], who presides over water, has lavender hair. And while Afura Mann's a BrainyBrunette, her blue/sea green attire shows she controls wind.
